NOCF Donations Total Over $200K Through 2018
The NOVA Open Charitable Foundation (NOCF) held its final Board meeting of the year on Monday, 12/03/18. After careful review of the Treasurer’s Report, we are proud to announce that NOCF will be donating – in the name of Tabletop Wargamers Worldwide – $85,000 this year!
The Board is also excited to share that these donations will raise the total given away since 2013 to over $210,000. Equally impressive, this year’s donations will double what NOCF gave to these charities in 2017:
- Doctors Without Borders, $40,000
- Breast Cancer Research Foundation, $20,000
- Fisher House Foundation, $20,000
A $5,000 donation was also made to the Arlington County Police Department, Friends & Family Funds in appreciation for their support of NOCF at NOVA Open 2018.
The NOCF enjoys substantial support from donors who target their contributions on specific costs, like tangible property, support products, storage, space, move-in/move-out costs, and more. In 2018, the value of these donations exceeded $55,000. These donations allow monies from the fundraisers to be available for the charities you support. If you get a chance, write to email@example.com and thank the NOVA Open and its all-volunteer staff for making this possible.
Congratulations to the winners of the 34 online raffles run by NOCF in 2018. Special thanks to those who participated in those online Raffles, supported the Silent Auction at NOVA Open, and spent time in the Foundation Lounge at the NOVA Open convention. Join us in sending sincere appreciations, as well, to Susan Perkins and the lounge staff who always exceed expectations – and to the entertainers who provided interest and activities in the Foundation Lounge for five nights in 2018.
Beyond those three fundraisers, special recognition for the success of 2018 NOCF goes to NOVA Open attendees who donated during registration, as well as the following donors: Marc Raley and the NOVA Open 30K team, Figure Painting Magazine, Historicon, Sam Sedghi, KR Multicase, Tablewar Designs, Game Envy, Remembrancer’s Retreat, and Epic Quest Master.
